Describe your perfect day in Oregon..
Wake up in my van with my daughter at my side… who’s probably just farted in the sheets and is already bugging me for hot chocolate. We skate in the sun to breakfast, read, go for a surf, then BBQ with some friends on the beach. Little bit of work and a little bit of play is also pretty perfect too!
Where do you draw your inspiration from?
Amazing homes. Since I’m in the mountains and at the beach so often, I’m really attuned to what works for vacation rental homes and having been in the business for so long, I just have a really deep appreciation for good design and high quality products.
Quote or Mantra to live by..
“Be cool,” – Jake Goodson
